There were a couple of reports in an earlier thread last year about shipping time to California taking around two weeks, but things may have changed since then.

I sent two packages on the same day from Arizona to Washington State to the same address. One package arrived one week after the other. You might as well be playing Plinko. COVID exacerbated the extant problems with the USPS in the U.S.

I placed a couple of orders from The Calculator Store in Spain and each was pretty consistent ~ 10 days to Michigan. Canada ~ 2 weeks.

To experience real USPS sorrow have a package sent via Media Mail.

Its like waiting for dinner to finish in the oven. You can smell the joy but its just not ready. :)

My DM41x was shipped to Mich on 07/19 and I anticipate ~ 3 weeks +/-.

DM12L arrived today took just over three weeks from Switzerland to California. Surprisingly quick and inexpensive about $11 USD for shipping. Only a few dollars more than our domestic priority mail.

Is there a way to check what version of firm where the calculator is running? I want to see if it's on the current firmware and updated if it isn't.

Congratulations on receiving your new device!

Yes, there is a way to check the firmware version. The special key assignments are listed in section 9 of the DM Voyager user manual.

https://technical.swissmicros.com/voyag ... er_manual/

For the DM12, with the calculator off, press and hold the FV key, then turn the calculator on.

There are also instructions in the manual regarding updating the firmware.

Thanks, it's on Version 28. Didn't see a USB Mini-AB in my drawer of cables. Do I need a 4 or 5 pin mini B?

Looking at this:

Tripp Lite U030-003/ U030-006-COIL
USB 2.0 A to Mini-B Cable (A to 5Pin Mini-B, M/M), 3 ft. (0.91 m)/ USB 2.0 A to Mini-B Coiled Cable (M/M), 6 ft. (1.83 m)

Probably 5 pin would be best. I used some short cables from external drives that had the correct shape of connector.

As a protocol. USB seems nice. As hardware connectors, it's not very easy, is it?

Another data point on shipping times, my DM42 arrived yesterday, taking just under 3 weeks to ship from Switzerland to the southeastern US.
